Welcome to the end of another week. I hope that, like me, you have been able to enjoy some lower temperatures this week and haven’t had to worry so much about melting into a puddle of sweat.
Today it is just beautiful here, which is very timely since I have to do a lot of outdoor work this weekend — removing the plants that didn’t survive the heatwave, trimming back others in readiness for their fall resting period, and a variety of other repairs. All that while making sure the puppy doesn’t “help” by pulling out plants that that I’d prefer remain in the ground and alive.
Ah, the fun never ends.
Currently, the puppy is sitting out on the deck, staring off into space, apparently thinking deep puppy-thoughts while I’m busy with the day job. Somewhere along the line there will no doubt be a vigorous game of fetch as well as a walk, once my work meetings are all wrapped up. I also need to fit in time to give today’s writing prompt and random words a try.
Care to join me?
For those of you working away on a story (whether a first draft or a polished version on its way to publication), if you’re not feeling random, we’d love to hear a bit – whether it’s a scene, a paragraph, or even a phrase that you are especially pleased with and would like to share.
If you don’t have a story in progress, or just want to work on something new, I hope either today’s random words or writing prompt will catch your creative fancy.
Prompt: The end of summer
Feel free to interpret the prompt any way you choose (or ignore it completely) and include any (or all) of the following random words:
burring flirt melody armchair
wise perplexing creature shore
difficult hazy crisp reunion
brother sudden accident blueberry
I look forward to seeing your stories in the comments. If you’re not feeling in the writing mood today, or don’t have time, feel free to post suggestions you might have for future writing prompts. Ideas are always welcome.
Happy writing to all!
